What are some good Nissan first cars?

I’ve driven Nissan cars ever since I first got my license—however, my current car is a bit outdated and I’m not familiar with the available options on newer models. My daughter needs a car, so I thought about a Nissan, but I want to know what the best models are. What are some of the top Nissan cars for first-time drivers?
